139. The anticipation advantage, with Amy Zalman

Dr. Amy Zalman is the former CEO and president of the World Future Society. While she was there, she repositioned the World Future Society for renewed future global impact — helping a transformational organization transform itself. She’s also the founder of Oryx Communications and chair of information integration at the National War College, where she’s introduced new ways of understanding information to future senior leaders so they can better inform their perspectives on the ways the world is changing —  not just technologically, but also culturally and geopolitically. She’s currently the founder of Prescient, a foresight consultancy that helps leaders and companies anticipate new opportunities, markets and threats before the competition does. In Prescient’s words, “Our clients manage the future by creating it.”Amy Zalman talks about anticipation: Is it a skill, a mindset, or a bit of both? How does it differ from critical and strategic thinking? How can we tell if we’re moving fast enough? And how should we start reimagining this profession going forward? It’s a fascinating and essential conversation with one of the world’s true deep thinkers in this space. To learn more, and for the complete show notes, visit blionline.org/blog.Resources:amyzalman.comworldfuture.orgnwc.ndu.eduprescient2050.comJeff Bezos-backed accounting start-up hits $1.2 billion valuation after new funding roundPilot's $100m Funding Round: What it Means for the Accounting ProfessionFuture-Proof is a production of Crate Media
